The Super Nintendo Entertainment System, also known as the Super NES or SNES, is a 16-bit video game console released by Nintendo in North America, Europe, and Australia.
Like the earlier NES 2, the new model was designed to be slimmer and lighter than its predecessor but lacked S-Video and RGB output, and would prove to be among the last major SNES-related releases in America.
Many of these devices were modelled after earlier add-ons for the NES: the Super Scope was a light gun similar to the NES Zapper (though the Super Scope featured wireless capabilities) and the Super Advantage was a arcade-style joystick with adjustable turbo settings akin to the NES Advantage.

 Classic Gamer Magazine: FEATURE: Sega Genesis vs. Super NES
Though the Super NES version has the edge in terms of visuals and sound, including more voice samples, the drastic edits to the finishing moves and absence of a blood code found in the Genesis game would irritate enough potential consumers that it helped changed Nintendo’s longstanding policy against violence.
While the Super NES version has a few extra visual effects, the control, music, and sound lack the punch of the Genesis game, which was more a testament to great programming than any advantage in hardware.
The 16-bit upgrades to the NES blockbuster hit were equally underwhelming in terms of presentation, though the Super NES version features some minor Mode-7 effects and team names in the endzones, which were inexplicably absent from the Sega title.

The Super Famicom was released on the 21st November 1990 in Japan, and basically took over the market (about 80% of the market was eventually taken by the Super Famicom after it had been established).
It was renamed the Super Nintendo Entertainment System and designed differently, however, some PAL versions of the Super NES look the same as the Super Famicom.
Often what occurred with the NES was that people would rest their drink on the console (which could be easily done on the flat surface), which would sometimes be spilt into the console, causing problems.

Since Nintendo themselves didn't manufacture any 4 play adaptor, like they did for the NES (the NES Satellite), it was Hudson Soft that released the most sold one.
It was originally sold in a package with Hudson's Super Bomberman for about 59.99 (dollars) but later it was also sold alone for approximately 29.95.

 Super Nintendo Entertainment System/Super Famicom Console Information
Even with the announcement of the 16-bit Sega Mega Drive in 1988, Nintendo were still happy with their NES and thought 16-bit was premature or unnecessary.
The Super Famicom would be 16-bit, just as they had originally wanted for the Famicom, but due to the high prices of such components at the time of making the Famicom, almost a decade before, it had to be 8-bit.
A shortage of supplies meant that the Super Famicom's US release would be delayed one year, meanwhile the success of the Genesis (The American version of the Mega Drive) continued to grow with its arcade ports and quality sports games.

 Twin Galaxies Forums :: View topic - Super Mario Brothers (NES) - NEW WORLD RECORD !!
The rules governing the world record for fastest minimalist completion are simple…the “clock” starts the instant you press the start button, and ends the instant that either the final bridge key by “Bowser” is touched, or when the final blow to “Bowser” is delivered via fireball.
Your only drawback at times might be momentum, such as when the hidden vine is opened in stage (4-2) and you need to come to a quick halt and jump up to the next block to reach it.
This is, in my opinion, one of the three most prestigious NES time-based titles to hold the record on, the other two being the original Zelda and the original Metroid.
